What music have you been listening to this past week?

Perhaps from a simpler time.

Somehow I woke up with this in my head - what was I dreaming??? Last thing in the dream was a problem with the rubber on my table tennis paddle, loose chack (glue) and non regulation blue rubber, pips out! Then this stupid song going through my head, and I had to find it online.

The latest album from English singer-songwriter Sam Fender: Sam Fender - Seventeen Going Under (Official Video) - YouTube

The description of him as the “Geordie Springsteen” is a bit strong, but the kid is good.

Not to be a pedant, but unless it has changed, it’s Sales. They were also in Runt with Todd Rundgren.

Thanks, I know some folks who spell it with the"y". Guess I got it confused.

Is it wrong, that I immediately started singing this song to myself as soon as I saw the caption?

It’s a damn earworm. It could have been in the semi-defunct earworm thread.

Some suspenseful music:

For some reason, it plays The Witch of Hemwick instead of Moon Presence in the album.

This one also plays the wrong song in the album.

I literally haven’t heard that song in 45 years, and could remember it like yesterday. I believe that’s the episode where Pebbles and Bam-Bam draw the outline of a square with their fingers to describe their fingers.
On a side note, I send the Flintstones Happy Anniversary song to my wife every May 5th to remind her how lucky she is. (I made out OK on the deal too!) That song is equally earwormish.

"Stairway To Heaven"

There’s a lady who’s sure all that glitters is gold
And she’s buying a stairway to Heaven
When she gets there she knows, if the stores are all closed
With a word she can get what she came for
Ooh, ooh, and she’s buying a stairway to Heaven
There’s a sign on the wall, but she wants to be sure
'Cause you know sometimes words have two meanings
In a tree by the brook, there’s a songbird who sings
Sometimes all of our thoughts are misgiven

Ooh, makes me wonder
Ooh, makes me wonder

I’m a lumberjack and I’m OK
I sleep all night and I work all day

He’s a lumberjack and he’s OK
He sleeps all night and he works all day

I cut down trees, I eat my lunch
I go to the lavatory
On Wednesdays I go shopping and have buttered scones for tea

He cuts down trees, he eat his lunch
He goes to the lavatory
On Wednesdays he goes shopping and has buttered scones for tea

I’m a lumberjack and I’m OK
I sleep all night and I work all day

I cut down trees, I skip and jump
I like to press wild flowers
I put on women’s clothing and hang around in bars

He cuts down trees, he skips and jumps
He likes to press wild flowers
He puts on women’s clothing and hangs around in bars

I’m a lumberjack and I’m OK
I sleep all night and I work all day

Lol @pennstac & @generic :laughing:… What’s going on ?? Is this the new music sharing way ?!? I’ll play. Kind of a cult classic, certainly not a hallmark of musical genius but this song always cracked me up…especially that last verse & until now my wife had never heard it (how is that possible) :man_shrugging: Anyone remember this….

Meow, meow, meow, meow, meow, meow
Meow, meow
Meow, meow

Little bag of bones been out all night
Little bag of bones been out all night
Can you hear him scratchin’ at the screen door?
Can you hear him scratchin’ at the screen door?
Little bag of bones been out all night

He needs some pettin’ and lovin’ on his head
He needs some pettin’ and lovin’ on his rain-soaked hide
He’s circlin’ around my ankle
He’s circlin’ around my ankle
He needs some pettin’ and lovin’ on his hide
Hey, kitty, won’t you come inside

Kitty at my foot and I wanna touch it
Kitty at my foot and I wanna touch it
Kitty at my foot and I wanna touch it
Kitty at my foot and I wanna touch it
Kitty at my foot and I wanna touch it
Kitty at my foot and I wanna touch it
Kitty at my foot and I wanna touch it
Kitty at my foot and I want to touch it

Meow, meow, meow, meow, meow, meow
Meow, meow
Meow, meow

Pussy purrin’ and lookin’ so satisfied
Pussy purrin’ and lookin’ so satisfied
I’m lost in his little yellow round eye
Lost in his little yellow round eye
Pussy purrin’ and lookin’ so satisfied

Kitty rear up and scratch me through my jeans
Kitty rear up and scratch me through my jeans
Fuck you, kitty, you’re gonna to spend the night
Fuck you, kitty, you’re gonna to spend the night
Fuck you, kitty, you’re gonna to spend the night outside

Now, this should be Off-Topic. Something I saw brought the Stairway to Heaven allegory to mind.

If one wants to climb Mt. Everest they can either do it alone or spend a lot of money to hire porters. The porters will carry their gear up the mountain, but at some point one must actually physically “climb” to “climb Mt. Everest” and reach the top.

Climbing requires a degree of skill and stamina, and the porters – even when paid well – can’t do all the climbing for anyone.

In the real world climbing Mt. Everest is a crowded, miserable affair. Terrible weather, massive crowds and traffic jams during the climbing season, risk of avalanches, dead bodies of failed climbers next to the trail, it costs a fortune to obtain a climbing permit, and even if you reach the top you can only stay for a few minutes. Without the physically fit and professional Sherpas (porters) to lay the trail, all the money in the world won’t allow an obese, out-of-shape billionaire to “climb” to the top of the world.

Now, what if the Sherpas are not even porters and one cannot pay them to sell or complete a stairway to heaven? What if they are just dudes wandering around the mountain not trying to climb Mt. Everest at all? Then there’s no stairway to heaven at all, just a lot of “makes me wonder” left over.
